Publishers of the Month

As "The Little Giant of Publishing," Grove Press is responsible for publishing the works of such luminaries as Samuel Beckett, Jorge Luis Borges, William S. Burroughs, and Henry Miller, to name a few. In it’s heyday, Grove achieved both respect and notoriety for it’s willingness to publish works considered highly subversive for the era. Black Cat, Venus and Evergreen were all imprints of this publishing house; they are admired for their design aesthetics as well as their content. Like The Modern Library, these books are addicting—beware you may become hooked!
Who doesn't love the rise and hold of Taschen? These are visually stunning books that not only surprise and delight but serve as excellent resources on almost any topic they turn their attention toward. It is eye candy at its finest, with a heavy emphasis on Pop Culture, Art, Photography and Design.
